:: [ S V V S Lunchtime Meeting - The Star, Lingfield - August ] ::
I am told that it is a free country and that Members
are allowed to not attend meetings if they do not wish to, and that is
exactly what approximately 145 SVVS members did at The Star Lingfield.
The weather was promised to be dismal but, in the event, was actually
mild, fine and dry. Three Mohaceks turned up in two cars, the Citroen
5CV and the Midget, to find Messers Derrick Graham lunching, who had
come in a modern, and who were being entertained by Tony Oakes who had
come in the Humber, and then left. About the same time arrived Messers
Brian Rice in the Spitfire and went to have a noisy lunch. Soon after
came another Sprigit of Messers Norman Conrad who joined the select
table in the bar and waited quite some time for their lunch. Before
everybody went home quite early we were joined by John Chapman in a
modern Volkswagen. Pretty dismal showing.
